This passionate interplay between the girl-queen and the wily conqueror provides the groundwork for George Bernard Shaw’s contention that there has been no social progress in the so-called Christian era, founded as it is upon judgment, guilt, and punishment, an era that can be characterized as "one of the bloodiest and most discreditable episodes" in the history of humankind. This is the third and final film in Barnes' 'Shaw vs. Shakespeare' series, starring Donald Moffat, Richard Kiley, and Suzanne Grossman. This is the third of a 3 part series.
